Description of Microsoft Authenticator

Use Microsoft Authenticator for easy, secure sign-ins for all your online accounts using multi-factor authentication, passwordless, or password autofill. You also have additional account management options for your Microsoft personal, work or school accounts.

Getting started with multi-factor authentication

Multi factor authentication (MFA) or two factor authentication (2FA) provides a second layer of security. When logging in with multi-factor authentication, you’ll enter your password, and then you’ll be asked for an additional way to prove it’s really you. Either approve the notification sent to the Microsoft Authenticator, or enter the one-time password (OTP) generated by the app. The one-time passwords (OTP codes) have a 30 second timer counting down. This timer is so you never have to use the same time-based one-time password (TOTP) twice and you don’t have to remember the number. The one-time password (OTP) doesn’t require you to be connected to a network, and it won’t drain your battery. You can add multiple accounts to your app, including non-Microsoft accounts like Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Google, LinkedIn, GitHub, and more.

Getting started with passwordless

Use your phone, not your password, to log into your Microsoft account. Just enter your username, then approve the notification sent to your phone. Your fingerprint, face ID, or PIN will provide a second layer of security in this two-step verification process. After you’ve signed in with two factor authentication (2FA), you’ll have access to all your Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, OneDrive, Office, and more.

Getting started with autofill

Microsoft Authenticator app can also autofill passwords for you. Sign-in on the Passwords tab inside the Authenticator app with your personal Microsoft account to start syncing passwords, including the passwords saved in Microsoft Edge. Make Microsoft Authenticator the default autofill provider and start autofilling passwords on apps and sites you visit on your mobile. Your passwords are protected with multi-factor authentication in the app. You will need to prove yourself with your fingerprint, face ID, or PIN to access and autofill passwords on your mobile. You can also import passwords from Google Chrome and other password managers.

Microsoft personal, work or school accounts

Sometimes your work or school might ask you to install the Microsoft Authenticator when accessing certain files, emails, or apps. You will need to register your device to your organization through the app and add your work or school account. Microsoft Authenticator also supports cert-based authentication by issuing a certificate on your device. This will let your organization know that the sign-in request is coming from a trusted device and help you seamlessly and securely access additional Microsoft apps and services without needing to log into each. Because Microsoft Authenticator supports single sign-on, once you have proven your identity once, you will not need to log in again to other Microsoft apps on your device.

This app is very good as protection on any device that your computer, phone, tablet, game console and etc. are connected to. Its easy to adjust to. The notifications are sent right away. I just can\'t say enough about this wonderful application of safety. Relieves and eases my mind especially when your computer email has been compromised. Its a life saver.

Can\'t understand this sudden annoyance to demand I sign in every time I log in from a different device. Never happened before. All to do with the fact that I have several email addresses using the same mobile number. It looks like security taken to an extreme. Pretty soon we will have to resort to sending messages via paper & pen. Great modern progress Microsoft? What next Tablets made of stone?

I logged into Microsoft Teams, it prompted for my phone number to send a verification code. I received and entered the and got a message that it was removing my telephone number from my account and would help me choose a new login when I log in again!! The next day I tried logging into Outlook, and got a message that there is something wrong with my account and the only way to fix it is to log onto the Microsoft Account web site. All had worked until the app was updated two days ago.

To my surprise, the Microsoft Authenticator App has helped me through some scary and frustrating times, it did exactly what it said it would do. It\'s easy to understand/follow, which gave me a sense of calm confidence. Taking away that defeated feeling I had before when using other Authenticators, when I\'m tryin to recover my accounts. Nothing\'s worse than an assistive App that doesn\'t assist you. Instead takin you on a ride of its own, not doing anything it said it would do. Great job Great App

Security is an annoying necessity; however, the authenticator app is slick as can be and still be safe. One point is, and this could be user error, lol, but it works wickedly so long as your phone or another device is close by... otherwise, you just go old-school password. Easy workaround and I doubt there is a better solution so I gave them a 5 star. I\'d do 4.5 so there is still a challenge to improve, but I gotta say, they\'re closer to the perfect 5, so the developers deserve the credit.

Nice security app. I like the way this security app works. I would have given 5 stars however, with recent Microsoft updates app has been working differently. Meaning having me re-sign in multiple times and not approving request in time. It has worked well in the past and I believe it will again. I would recommend this app to others. Enjoy!

I\'ve been working with online security options since the late 80s. A lot has changed in that time but one thing that hasn\'t, and that is the need for secure authenticating when you are online and expecting a secure and trusted connection. Two step confirmation is critical in today\'s online applications. This MS Authenticator has always worked and worked well. I highly recommend it.

This app makes the grade by making my life a little less complicated, and does so, without compromising my account security. The experience is refreshing, coming from Microsoft; I feel my eyes welling up with nostalgic tears, as I remember a time, long ago, when customer service was a top priority, for the company. Perhaps it\'s a positive portent of things to come!

The app doesn\'t show notification consistently when I am trying to login to my work account. When it shows notification, even though I approve it displays \"Denied\". I don\'t know whether this issue is happening in my phone only!! This application seriously needs some fix. I request the concerned team to look into this asap.

This app is a MUST HAVE for all 2 factor authentication needs. I highly recommend also having Google\'s Authentication app as well to split up your accounts just in case. They\'re both easy to use for beginners but really any 2 factor authentication app is a must have. So use whichever one you\'re comfortable with. However MAKE SURE TO DISABLE ANY 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION before switching phones or resetting a phone!
